EUROB Creative has developed a software module, named SmartComfort, which provides a measure of the level of comfort of a specific area in real time: this software provides the thermal comfort, acoustic comfort and luminous comfort measurements calculation in real time, and also an estimation of the global comfort level of the surroundings.
The data gathering process collects all the necessary data from selected testbeds of the FIESTA-IoT platform, in particular, from SmartSantander for outdoor measurements and from NITOS for indoor. This task also establishes procedures to identify and discard anomalous values due to malfunctions of the smart sensors. The selected data is semantically processed in order to establish an overall comfort level.
The first version of the SmartComfort prototype has been improved, based on the feedback received during the first evaluations, leading to the final version of the SmartComfort software, on which the final tests and validation have been carried out.
The final version of our SmartComfort module for outdoor scenarios has been designed as a new feature of our Android App, InCity Together (with more than 15,000 downloads in Google Play), for the users in the region of Santander (Spain). By integrating the SmartComfort module in this application, InCity Together will be able to provide users a map of smart comfort places in real time, taking into account IoT sensors data from the city of Santander.
On the other hand, the final version of our SmartComfort module for indoor scenarios has been designed as a web page, allowing users to check comfort places in real time within the offices of NITlab, in the city of Volos (Greece).
In summary, SmartComfort experiment determines the level of comfort of a particular area in real time, providing users with a new tool for improving their well-being, and delivering additional value services.
The SmartComfort project has been accomplished thanks to the possibility of accessing the smart sensors’ data from the FIESTA-IoT platform, together with the different tools and the support provided by the FIESTA-IoT platform members.
